Laminate Flooring: A Contemporary Choice for Stylish and Durable Homes
Laminate flooring has significantly transformed flooring options, shedding its initial reputation as a budget-friendly DIY solution with mediocre aesthetics. Today, it has gained popularity in Australian homes for its appealing appearance and remarkable durability over an extended lifespan. While outdated perceptions linger, it's crucial to recognise the evolved nature of laminates, making them a preferred choice for young families, renovators, and first-home builders seeking a resilient timber-like floor.
Aesthetic Appeal and Options
Laminate flooring boasts a realistic appearance, surpassing vinyl in authenticity. Both laminate and vinyl offer luxury options that can elevate the style of your space. The latest technologies in laminate production incorporate variations in finish, bevel, and treatment, utilising texture and imaging to achieve a lifelike look, closely mimicking hardwood floors or natural stone. The quality and versatility of laminate flooring in emulating Australian timber species are unparalleled, bringing practicality and style to any home or office.
Wear Resistance and Practicality
Laminate floors have evolved in terms of wear resistance. Modern laminates, with a pressed timber core and protective layers, overcome issues like cupping, providing durability even in high-traffic areas. Unlike early laminates, contemporary options handle wet environments adeptly, making them suitable for kitchens, laundries, and bathrooms. The material's resistance to indentation and scratches aligns with the dynamic lifestyle of young families.
While laminate flooring is greener compared to vinyl, with a core composed of wooden materials and some incorporating recycled content, it's essential to note that the wear layer still comprises a plastic surface. Although not as environmentally friendly as engineered timber, laminate's 90% wood content gives it an edge over vinyl alternatives. By prioritising sustainable practices, Floorworld flooring offers durable and stylish solutions and contributes to the planet's overall well-being. Floorworld's dedication to environmental consciousness makes it a reliable choice for customers seeking flooring options that combine aesthetics with a commitment to sustainability.
Floorworld's Laminate Flooring Collection
Floorworld presents a diverse and visually stunning laminate flooring collection, combining aesthetics with durability. The range offers various styles, colours, and textures for different design preferences. Elevate your living space effortlessly with Floorworld's latest laminate options that are easy to maintain and cost-effective.
Laminate flooring can come in two types: smooth and embossed. Smooth laminate has a texture-free surface that resembles polished wood, marble, or ceramic-style flooring. On the other hand, embossed laminate has a pressed pattern that gives it a wood grain texture. If you're aiming for a modern, contemporary, or minimalist look, you may want to consider black or grey laminate flooring. A lighter or whitewashed wood colour would be more appropriate for a beach or coastal-style room. Traditional-style rooms may benefit from oak or cherry wood colouring.
